## Answers ( )

Answer:deepika’s age = x

vikas’ age = x+3

Six years ago,

deepika age = x-6

Vikas’ age = (x+3)-6 = 4(x-6)

vikas age = (x+3)-6 = 4(x-6)

= x+3-6 = 4x-6

= x-4x = -6-3+6

-3x = -3

x=1

= Deepika = 1

vikas = 4

Deepika=x

Vikas=x+3

Six years ago

Deepika=x-6

Vikas=4(x+3-6)

Then,

x-6=4(x-3)

x-6=4x-12

x-4x=-12-6

-3x=-18

x=6

So,

Deepika=6 years old

Vikas= 9 years old
